    Twitter user @SargeWP had the brilliant idea of going back in rappers' timelines to find incriminating tweets from their days before fame. Let's just say it's even worse than you could have imagined. What has been unearthed is tweets upon tweets of rappers commenting on fellow artists, and offering their completely unfiltered opinions.

    Rappers Share Their Smoking Preferences For 4/20

    Today may not be a government-mandated holiday, but for those who advocate a green lifestyle, it's just as important as any other statutory holiday. Rap music has a special niche for all the weed smokers out there, however it's really transcended that niche genre and has become pretty common-place. Every other song has a reference (or three) about lighting up/rolling up/smoking up. It's safe to say we don't need a reason to smoke, but hey, we'll take one.

    Both Azealia Banks and Action Bronson are known to be rather candid and outspoken when it comes to Twitter, and they just so happened to butt heads today. Following Banks' HOT 97 interview, where she spoke her mind about white appropriation of black culture, it seems that a fan of hers brought Bronson's name into the conversation.

    As a former gourmet chef of Albanian and Jewish descent who raps over a Tracy Chapman guitar riff at most of his shows, Action Bronson has always been a unique presence in hip-hop. Never has this been more pronounced, though, than at last week’s South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas. Despite the chaos that goes along with an estimated 2,300 rappers, bands and artists converging in a city with less than 900,000 residents, SXSW isn’t quite the free-for-all, indie-championing event that it advertises itself as.

Bronson attacked the Azealia when his name was mentioned by a fan who was discussing the Harlem rapper's recent comments about white privilege.

    When sampling, producers usually try to find obscure and/or rare source material to draw from, both because they don't want listeners to associate their final product with a song they already know, and because they'd likely to avoid copyright issues. But sometimes, out-of-the-box ideas will come to fruition, and lead producers to sample from well-known, but unexpected places.

    Along with emceeing, DJing and breakdancing, graffiti is one of the four fundamental elements of hip-hop, and it's been an integral part of the culture since the beginning. Films such as Charlie Ahearn's Wild Style and Stan Lathan's Beat Street helped define this vivid form of expression in the 80s, and it's since grown into an international phenomenon. You'll find graffiti art in most corners of the globe at this point.

    Action Bronson’s new album is a bid to be considered the funniest man in hip hop. A week after Kendrick Lamar’s album has the entire culture debating race, politics, and society, Mr. Wonderful reminds us that sometimes rap can also be about wicked-funny punch lines and ridiculous one-liners as much as it can attempt to impact culture itself. It’s that joke your friend makes to lighten the mood while your other two buddies are about to come to fisticuffs.

    Lets be real, most of us can't even afford to buy CDs at retail value. At least that's what we tell ourselves as we pirate just about every record we can get our hands on. That being said, there are some things in life that just aren't accessible for free on the internet no matter how badly we want them to be. One of those things is food. Another is live performances. "Bullshit! 50 is streaming his SXSW performance for free on March 11th," you might say. Well, first off, stop being a smart ass. Second, while it's true you might be able to "see" Mr.

    Only a handful of artists release as much content as Curren$y does. Some can match the quantity, but none can top the quality. Spitta Andretti is known for releasing album-quality mixtapes at a constant rate, giving fans all they can digest. 2013’s New Jet City was one of the hottest mixtapes of the year, and his latest offering The Drive In Theatre doesn’t disappoint either.

Kendrick Lamar's To Pimp A Butterfly is still sitting comfortably atop the charts, while the Empire soundtrack trails not-so-far behind. Both Action Bronson and Earl Sweatshirt had their opening weeks, with Bronsolino edging out his Odd Future competitor by a good 5 spots on the Billboard 200. Elsewhere, releases from Big Sean, Nicki Minaj, Drake, and J. Cole, continued to accumulate sales, with a couple of them edging their way toward platinum status.

    Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who don't believe every hip-hop video has to be about models sitting on the hood of a rented car. The idiots who believe you cannot fill a three and a half minute run time with close-ups of your friends mean-mugging and call it a day.
